In order to wash away my sins for ignoring the gamers lately i am going to present you a nice piece of design for those who love spending an evening/night playing poker with their friends and not only.
The brazilian designer-architect Mauricio Arruda had an innovative idea when he created the House of Cards Table.
In order to satisfy our curiosity the designer presents us the process of production : “To manufacture the table, a process of laser cutting was used. This technology created a perfect reproduction of a deck of cards in scale 13:1. Subsequently, steel cards were welded one to one forming a second‐story house of cards that serves as an under frame. These frames feature a versatile look to the piece, since they are capable of supporting different sized tabletops. The design options were made to accommodate form 6 to 10 seats . The images of the playing cards are printed individually in the plates of steel, which allows each table to have a different configuration, becoming single pieces. They are assembled like a house of cards in a real cards game, where each piece is drawn randomly.”
